somewhat different because we have to try to set standards in an environment of incomplete information. we don't have the benefit of decades of experience, and we know challenges are revolving. but it's still incumbent upon us to try to develop meaningful, cost effective regulation that we can enforce in an environment of imperfect knowledge. two weeks ago the commission approved version five of the critical infrastructure protection standards that cover the bulk electric grid against cybersecurity incidents. they're not perfect, we did is ask some questions as we approved them, things that we wanted modified, but they represent a substantial step forward from the protections that were in place before with. we've also started a rulemaking to require standards to protect against geomagnetic disturbances that can be caused by solar storms and human actions, a real example of high-impact, low-frequency threats to reliability that we need to get ready for before they happen. finally, i want to touch on the subject that congressman waxman raised, the physical security of the assets that make up

suddenly their economy is booming and trade is taking place because they have created an environment in which israel is confident about its security and a lot of the old barriers to commerce and educational exchange and all that has begun to break down, that's something that the young people of gaza are going to want. and the pressure that will be placed for the residents of gaza to experience that same future is something that is going to be i think overwhelmingly appealing. but that is probably going to take place during the course of some sort of transition period. and the security requirements that israel requires will have to be met. and i think that is able -- that we can accomplish that, but ultimately it's going to be something that requires everybody to stretch out of their comfort zones. and the one thing i will say to the people of israel is that you can be assured whoever is in the office i currently occupy, democrat or republican, that your security will be uppermost on our minds. that will not change. and that should not mean you let up on your vigilance in terms of wantin

place an environment that creates jobs, that lays a foundation for economic growth, and that's one of the things that getting a budget deal would help do. we've recently seen some signs of progress in the economy, the jobs report on friday was positive with over 200,000 private-sector jobs added in november, and we've now had 45 straight months of private-sector job growth. but we all know that we're not out of the woods yet. we have a lot more work to do. and we need to build on the momentum that is there to get more people back to work. when i travel around new hampshire, my constituents tell me that they're very frustrated with the gridlock in washington and what they want is for us to agree on a budget and to take action that supports economic growth. granite staters are absolutely right about that. with the potential budget agreement, we have an opportunity to eliminate some of the uncertainty in our economy, to eliminate some of those harmful cuts that are part of sequestration, the automatic budget cuts and to finally set some priorities that will help us create jobs. sadly,

non-dynamic environment is an opportunity, not a obstacle. a big institution lots of people care about sometimes during the course of the year lots ever people will tune in. is there constitutional right to same-sex marriage? yeah there's a big part of population interested of that. is obamacare constitutional? a huge number of people will focus on it in an institution will not adapt itself because it is very stayed in -- staid in getting that information out there. what it is they're that we're doing as part after national conversation it should be clear to everyone we're hardly alone. so for example, american lawyer media for which tony now works, has this wonderful publication, supreme court insider, which is getting more information about the court. pete now reports not on, all the law that, the justice department, the supreme court but they have instead of one platform in nbc news now, msnbc ends the website of "nbc news." so i do think that we're far from alone in taking advantage of the lower cost of distribution. we should talk at some point what the economic models of all thes
